CNN anchor declares show a “Wright-free zone”
Matthew Balan at Newsbusters reports on today’s “American Morning” show on CNN, and how anchor John Roberts cozied up to Barry O.:
CNN’s John Roberts apparently took David Gergen’s advice from last week, and during his interview of Barack Obama on Monday’s “American Morning,” declared out of the gate that he wasn’t going to ask the Democrat from Illinois about his former pastor. “I want to just stipulate at the beginning of this interview, we are declaring a Reverend Wright-free zone today. So, no questions about Reverend Wright. Our viewers want us to move on, so this morning we’re going to move on. Is that okay with you?” Obama reacted favorably to this declaration. “Fair enough. That sounds just fine.”
Wow. So does this mean that if viewers would have called and written in droves asking the network to “move on” from pLamegate, NSAgate, FiredAttorneysGate and all the other non-scandals that have come and gone over the years that they drove into the ground, shows on CNN would have listened and “moved on”?
In related news, I’ve found another reason not to like Obama: He shot hoops with the Carolina Tarheels last week:
